But it has now been proven by researchers at the University of Michigan that walking in nature makes you smarter. They compared taking walks in urban and natural environments and found a statistically significant difference. I heard this on the radio this morning and when I left for lunch time walk in happy valley I told Lisa I was going for a smart walk.
I am not sure it made me smarter but it did improve my alertness for the afternoon.The evening was spent at the side of the soccer pitch for the season opener. Team Ireland, Deborah's team won 11-2.
I guess you can see I was doing a little embroidery while I watched the action.
